In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we head just a couple hours south of Albuquerque to Hatch, New Mexico, a town where the heat doesn’t just come from the sun. It also comes from the signature crop: Hatch chiles.

This episode is produced in partnership with GoUSA TV. If you want to see more of the series Small Town, Big Story, watch now on GoUSA TVor YouTube.
